Yes I know - I was referring to YOUR dealer (Rob), as the one convincing me :-)

He also said the iw-150 has the best dispersion of all the in walls (but not near the tripoles) due to the arrangement of the three tweeters.
Very interesting! Since Atmos ceiling speakers are effect speakers, and not even discrete channels unless playing a film specifically encoded with Atmos, it seems like you would be moving your best speakers out of the channels you would want them in. I do understand that the S-150T gives great dispersion as tripoles.

PLEASE let me know how this turns out for you! I think your experience here will be most helpful for the rest of us.

I think you misunderstood me.
The SS150THX is the older M&K tripole surround speaker, while the S150T is the new owner's - MK Sound (Now M&K Sound) - replacement tripole surround speaker.


So I will be moving My older model tripoles to the ceiling and placing the newest and better speakers low.

Huh... I didn't think the S-150T's were better than the SS-150, even though they are newer, but I certainly could be wrong. (I have the SS-150's myself for my surrounds) Please do let us know how it goes for you!

It is only what I have been told by users of both models, I haven't had a chance to test them against each other myself.
I read somewhere, I thing it was on avforums, that someone who had upgraded to Mk sound S150 mkii LCR felt they didn't blend as well with the SS150THX as with the S150T, so he upgraded the tripoles as well.

Yes the S150T's have better drivers in them than the old plus a more inert cabinet. Don't get me wrong the SS150's are brilliant and would not need to be upgraded unless you went for the 300T's.
